    Looking for suggestions on a 5-string bridge that has the capability to get spacing really tight...REALLY tight. I'm talking down to 1/2 inch.

    My Warwick can get pretty tight, and I used to not like that too much. In the long run, I think it's made me a better bassist overall, as it's forced me to become more precise. At any rate, thanks! In the meantime, I'll continue my searches...

    Let me answer with another question...does anyone know if the Hipshot 4 to 5 conversion bridge is capable of a narrower spacing than their normal 5-string type A? Yes, I've emailed them, but in the meantime...it's nice to check with folks who have experience with them. Thanks for any help.
